With auto maybe ask $17,500 and be prepared to haggle down to $16,999. I think you'll get it fairly quickly.
The catch is it's a bit of money and probably will require a loan. That may work against you.
The Jeep dealer is gonna low-ball you on trade, maybe $15k. You can ask in the Real-world Trade-in values thread right here on Edmunds.
#39 of 39 The dealers always want our cars

My wife and I just don't put a lot of mileage on vehicles anymore. My wife does about 9K a year, and I do about 6K to 7K split between my 2 personal vehicles. I need 2 vehicles like a hole in the head, but can never figure out which one I don't want/need so I stay with 2.
My wife's 05 LLBean Forester has about 27K on it at the moment, my 06 Forester Premium has 5K, and my 03 Tundra has 13K. When I was still working folks used to put their orders in for our cars ahead of time because they know I am a maintenance fanatic, including Mobil 1. We almost never traded in a vehicle, but now that I am early-retired I have lost my audience.
When my wife sold her 01 Premium Forester to buy her Bean the dealer wanted it very much, said it was the first used car that they had seen that they wouldn't have to do a thing to it, just drive it out front and put it into the row. She sold it to my sister-in-law, who still has it and loves it, to the dealer's chagrin. When I traded my 02 Forester L for my 06 it had 17K on it, and the dealer REALLY wanted it, so I made them happy.
